      In JIRA 7.3, Project Administrators are allowed to edit the projects workflow with restrictions

      We've extended the project administrators permission, so that project administrators can now edit their projects workflow under certain conditions:

      • The workflow must not be shared with any other projects
      • The workflow cannot be the JIRA default system workflow, which cannot be edited at all

      The project admins will not be able to edit the workflow to the same extent as a JIRA administrator. The restrictions are:

      • To add a status, the status must already exist in the JIRA instance i.e. the project admin can't create new statuses or edit existing statuses
      • The project admin isn't allowed to delete a status from the workflow
      • The project admin can create, update or delete transitions, but they can't select or update a screen used by the transition, or edit a transition's properties, conditions, validators or post-functions


      To extend this feature, it would help if

      • It would be great if someone assigned this permission can edit any Workflow which is only assigned to projects which they manage (in addition to Worlflows which are only attached to a single project).
      • To have ability to edit the transition properties, conditions, validators or post-functions
